Digital signage for manufacturing
Together with Robotic Process Automation, Internet of Things, Cloud computing, Artificial Intelligence, Digital Signage has become a critical technology in shopfloors and warehouses. Thanks to the digital visual management and information enabled by Digital Signage, manufacturing companies maximize the return on investment (ROI) of their massive investments in Industry 4.0.
Why opt for digital signage in manufacturing?
Towards digital visual information & management
The deployment of digital signage at production sites to develop digital visual information and management has multiple benefits:
- Easing the adjustment of production to changing conditions.
- Accelerating integration of new operators and temporary staff.
- Restoring employee engagement and reducing turn over.
- ... and overall growing the operational performance!
Industry 4.0 is already connecting all production resources
- The various business applications – ERP, MES, PLM, WMS…
- The production equipment.
- The supply chain partners.
- The customers through online applications and the cloud.
… However field workers have limited access to information
- No real-time access to production data to help them adjust their activities to changing conditions.
- No convenient access to digital knowledge bases such as maintenance guides, procedure to configure production equipment, security rules…
- A usually limited access to corporate information.
Digital Signage and digital visual management in manufacturing make it possible to fully leverage the power of the data at production sites, shop floors, warehouses. It helps also streamlining communication, making activity achievements visible and information accessible to all and in real-time.
